THE ORLANDO OFFICE OF CARLTON FIELDS hosted eight Serbian delegates in May as part of the delegates’ one-week trip to the U.S. to study and learn more about the federal and Florida judicial systems. The delegation comprised of some with law degrees, a former judge, two judges-in-waiting, and court administrators – one of whom is the head administrator for the highest court in Serbia, charged with trials of organized crime and war criminals. The visit was arranged through the U.S. State Department, a U.S. congressional program know as Open World and the federal court system.
